Which is better and What is the difference between, Node-locked license and DevOps license (Katalon Runtime Engine)

Hey uday

The differences between DevOps and Node-locked licenses are mentioned here.


@ Jass
For DevOps, along with the License do you provide a Cloud as well?


Could you help me find the information.
Is it need to have a KSE on a machine that will run KRE?


KSE is for test development, and KRE is for test execution. You don’t need to have an KSE on the machine that runs tests with KRE.

And what about licence? Could I use KRE when the lic will end?
Is Internet need on the machine with KRE for running?

Hello everyone,

You’re recommended to read this announcement regarding the consolidation of both Katalon Runtime Engine DevOps and Floating licenses into one licensing offering, Floating .


Hallo there. Can someone please elaborate on the difference between KRE and an Agent? It seems like they overlap?
In-fact, I have an Agent with a KS Free installed, and I get in the log the errors:

[2021-03-23T12:30:42.171Z] [DEBUG]: 	Your trial has expired. Please subscribe to continue using Katalon Runtime Engine.

Is it correct to say that Agent+(KS-GUI) = KRE ?
